Errata ID: 3389
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Thomas Lane

Section 6 says:

MIME User Agents that do recognize Multipart/Related entities but are
unable to process the given type should give the user the option of
suppressing the entire Multipart/Related body part shall be.

It should say:

MIME User Agents that do recognize Multipart/Related entities but are
unable to process the given type SHOULD give the user the option of
suppressing the entire Multipart/Related [some grammatically well-formed English].

Notes:

Capitalize the keyword SHOULD.

the entire Multipart/Related body part? the entire Multipart/Related body? all the Multipart/Related content? the entire Multipart/Related body, or just the particular body part of unrecognized type? I'm not sure what this was originally intended to say, just that what's there is a typo.
